Former Scunthorpe, Southampton, Reading and Sheffield United boss Adkins, 52, becomes the Tigers’ fifth manager in less than 17 months and replaces Leonid Slutsky, who departed by mutual consent on Sunday.
A statement on the club’s official website said: “The Tigers are pleased to announce Nigel Adkins as the Club’s new Head Coach.”
The statement continued: “Adkins, a Championship promotion-winner with Southampton in 2012, will be joined at the KCOM Stadium by his trusted assistant Andy Crosby on an 18-month contract.
“Adkins, 52, will oversee his first training session this morning and will take charge of the side for Saturday’s home game against Brentford.”
Adkins has been out of work since being sacked by Sheffield United in May 2016 after just one season in charge.
He had been tasked with steering the Blades to promotion from Sky Bet League One but they finished eight points off the play-offs and he was replaced by Chris Wilder.
Adkins has twice guided Scunthorpe to promotion from League One and steered Saints to the Premier League in 2012 but was dismissed halfway through the following season.
Slutsky, the first Russian to manage an English club, was appointed by Hull last summer following the club’s relegation from the top flight.
But the former CSKA Moscow and Russia national team coach won only four of his 20 Sky Bet Championship matches in charge and left the Tigers in 20th place, three points above the bottom three.

FA Cup holders Arsenal will face a trip to Nottingham Forest as they bid to defend the trophy, while Liverpool will tackle neighbours Everton, following the third-round draw for the competition.
The Merseysiders, who last met in the tournament in the 2012 semi-final which Liverpool won 2-1, will play each other at Anfield on the weekend beginning January 5.
Non-league Hereford will welcome 2016 Premier League champions Leicester to Edgar Street provided they win their replay against Fleetwood.
Premier League leaders Manchester City are at home to Burnley, while potential upsets include West Ham’s trip to League One high-flyers Shrewsbury, and Championship leaders Wolves at home to ailing Swansea.
Manchester United are at home to Championship Derby, while Tottenham meet League One AFC Wimbledon at Wembley.
Brighton and Crystal Palace will rekindle their rivalry at the AMEX Stadium after last month’s Premier League goalless draw which was marred by crowd trouble.
Hereford boss Peter Beadle said the prospect of facing Leicester at Edgar Street would give his Southern Premier Division side all the incentive they need to see off Fleetwood.
Beadle told BBC Sport: “Former Premier League champions coming to Edgar Street – we’ve got 90 minutes to get through but if we do, there’s the incentive.
“We’ve got three league games before that and they are our priority, but then we can relax and enjoy the replay knowing we have got a huge incentive.”
The other remaining non-League sides did not fare so well in the draw, with all three handed difficult away trips provided they come through their respective second round ties.
National League AFC Fylde will not be too disappointed with a trip to Premier League Bournemouth if they upset the odds in their replay at Wigan.
Woking will travel to Aston Villa if they overcome Peterborough at the second attempt, while Slough Town would travel to Doncaster if they won their outstanding second round tie against Rochdale on Monday night.

Leonid Slutsky was unable to transform Hull's form after their relegation. Hull City have announced the departure of manager Leonid Slutsky by mutual consent. Slutsky's future had been the subject of speculation in recent weeks after poor form in the Championship, and sources close to both club and manager told ESPN FC on Sunday that he was set to leave. Although Hull salvaged a last-gasp draw at Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday, they have now won only two of their last 15 games. And in a statement on Hull's official website, vice-chairman Ehab Allam said: "Unfortunately...Hull City – teamtalk.com 3 Dec 20:56
Hull have parted company with head coach Leonid Slutsky six months after appointing him as the English Football League’s first Russian boss.
Slutsky, 46, who replaced Marco Silva at the KCOM Stadium in June, has won only four of his 19 Sky Bet Championship games in charge.
Saturday’s draw at Sheffield Wednesday left the Tigers, relegated from the Premier League last season, 20th in the table, three points above the bottom three.
The club confirmed Slutsky’s departure in a statement and also said head of club strategy Oleg Yarovinsky had left his role at the KCOM Stadium.
Tigers vice-chairman Ehab Allam said: “Leonid has worked tirelessly in his role and has acted with complete honour and been a pleasure to work with. Unfortunately results have not improved as both parties would have hoped and therefore it was agreed for the relationship to come to an end.
“I would like to thank Leonid and Oleg for their efforts here and sincerely wish them well for the future.”
Slutsky said: “I would like to really thank everyone associated with Hull City from the players and staff to the owner and especially the fans.
“I am very proud to have been through this experience, it was challenging but a very exciting time for me.
“Hull City will always be a part of my heart and I wish the team all the very best for the future.”
Former CSKA Moscow boss Slutsky, Russia’s head coach at Euro 2016, was widely considered a wise choice when appointed by Hull’s owners, Assem and Ehab Allam, following Silva’s departure to Watford.
Slutsky, a good friend of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, won three Russian league titles with CSKA and revealed he had spent five months learning English on his arrival in East Yorkshire.
Hull added that the process to recruit a new head coach was under way, with former Southampton and Sheffield United manager Nigel Adkins linked as a possible replacement for Slutsky.

The Brazilian has been sidelined since sustaining a hamstring injury in pre-season, but featured in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Bradford during the international break and may be involved.
Michael Hector is available again after his one-game ban and fellow defender Ondrej Mazuch is back in contention after a hamstring injury.
Striker Frazier Campbell sits out a one-match ban after reaching five yellow cards, while Jon Toral (hamstring), Stephen Kingsley (groin), Will Keane (knee) and Abel Hernandez (Achilles) and Ryan Mason (fractured skull) are all still out.
Ipswich midfielder Emyr Huws is expected to be in contention to make his first appearance of the season following an Achilles problem.
Cole Skuse has returned to training following a shin injury, so should also be involved, but fellow midfielder Tom Adeyemi remains sidelined by his hamstring problem.
Defender Tommy Smith is not set to arrive back from international duty with New Zealand until Friday morning, so is not expected to feature, but forward David McGoldrick, whose groin problem ruled him out of contention for the Republic of Ireland, should make the trip to Hull.
Midfielder Teddy Bishop continues his rehabilitation from a groin/hernia problem along with Luke Hyam and Andre Dozzell following their respective knee surgery.
